Poisoned Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko died on Thursday in an intensive care ward, London's University College Hospital said.

Litvinenko, a fierce critic of the Russian government, suffered a rapid deterioration in his health on Thursday, but doctors still were unable to determine the cause of his death, a spokesman said in a statement.

Between Putin and Syria, they are really running up quite a hit list.

Possible fish or mushroom poisons: hard to detect [proteins], and cause massive organ failure. Say, phalloidin extracted from Amanita phalloides.

Well, we know it's not Putin. Bush looked into his eyes and saw a good man.

Yes, and thank God for that. Had he not told us, we would probably, God forbid, think that Pooty was a cold blooded killer. The next rumble you hear will be the bots arriving to call us bad names, and tell us how eeeeevil we are. You RINO! LOL! You corrupted me. ;o)

"Puffer fish" - Fugutoxin [or saxitoxin] is detectable. I'd rather think of some poisonous protein, like mushroom extract.

Historical roller coaster... U.S. withdraw from Vietnam empowers the USSR and deepens the roots of communism, eventually USSR takes on Afghanistan only to suffer a loss to the hands of the Muhajadeen later to become the Taliban which emboldens Islamic Fundamental terrorists into believing that they can beat world Super Powers... This led to the eventual collapse of the USSR followed by 911 and our fight against terror, invading Iraq which the left has turned into Vietnam will start the cycle all over again. Look for a future alignment of Putin and Amadmanjihadi against our interests in the Middle East a new rise of Communism in Russia with an Islamic alliance will dominate the World... Goodbye good ole USA.. Prediction is we have about 10 years left as a free Democratic Republic.

What a vicious bastard!

He didn't even hesitate to die - only to steam Honorable President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.

Those anti-Putinists are so horribly fanatical, aren't they? (sarcasm).

I'm confused. He lost his hair, put only the hair on his head? His eyebrows are still there. He still has hair on his chest and the back of his hand.

Putin sure knows how to deal with his political enemies.

I bet his party won't be losing control any time soon.

That particular hospital doesn't even carry syrup of ipecac. I spent part of the summer in London and walked by that hospital every day. I was amazed at the number of patients standing outside the front door waiting for treatment.

In Russia, the president kills his enemies. In America, the enemies (liberals) want to kill the president. US-SU (Soviet Union). A mirror image. Hmmmmm....
